3 stars EDERA are from Milan Italy and this is their first official album after making some demos earlier in their careers. I like their sound,it's slightly dark with lots of piano, bass and drums standing out. The vocalist might make or break it for a lot of people. He's quite theatrical at times and his voice will quiver on occassion, but he can sing. I do get a little tired of his vocals after a while as they do dominate the sound often. By the way he does sing in English.

Some of the highlights for me include the short "...A Needle Fell" which sounds so good as it starts with piano and bass before guitar and drums join in. Man I wish they just ran with this sound but the vocals come in and the mood for me changes for the worse. "Walls" is good too as they contrast the more laid back sections with the more powerful emotional passages. The guitar to end it is excellent.

This may not be four stars for me but it's an enjoyable listen and an album that's well worth checking out.
